Kathleen's career began in the world of fashion, as a designer for Ralph Lauren. While designing the Ralph Lauren Polo Bear, her dream of writing and illustrating teddy bear themed children's books was born. After ten years in the corporate world, Kathleen boldly left her executive position to pursue her personal dream.

Kathleen is currently a full-time author and illustrator, having four books in print. Her charming books have been featured in The New York Times, Newsday, and on CBS News Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood. She has presented her popular programs in hundreds of schools, libraries, and museums across the country, including the Smithsonian Museum of American History. Her programs have also been nationally televised on C-Span Book TV.

Kathleen's signature illustration technique was developed during her years as a professional artist. The tones and textures of her illustrations are achieved through the application of marker and multiple delicate layers of colored pencil.
